Review - Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara

I have been wanting to try Rimmel's lash accelerator mascara for a while now. I haven't yet hopped on the "eye product that makes my eyelashes grow faster" train yet and thought this would be an easy way to try it out. If I liked how the mascara applied, then maybe I could maintain some loyalty and wear it for a full 30 days. According to Rimmel, this mascara and lash treatment instantly make your lashes up to 80% visibly longer and will make them up to 117% visibly longer after 30 days of use. Who knows if I will be patient enough to see this 47% additional increase in length; only time will tell.

I took some before and after pictures; let's take look at some instant gratification:
Not bad! The lashes do appear significantly longer. However, this could just be because most of my lashes are blond and invisible until mascara is applied. Regardless, the end result is great. As for application, it went on OK. Keep in mind, I had to apply several coats to get the effect pictured above (and below). The brush was not really reaching the lashes in the outer corner of my eyes so I tried to apply with just the tip of the brush which did result in a little clumpage that I had to smoothe off with my fingers and try again. Overall, I like the way this mascara applies and will wait to see if that extra 47% of magic makes itself known.
